Youth

Born in Paris, France, Gall moved to the United States with his family at the age of seven. The family settled in Herndon, Virginia, and Gall received his U.S. citizenship at fifteen.[2]

Gall played for the academy teams of D.C. United and Real Salt Lake before joining the academy of FC Lorient in 2011. Ranked as the #2 recruit in his class, he committed to playing college soccer for the University of Maryland, but instead opted to play with the reserves at Lorient.[3]

Club career

Gall signed with Major League Soccer in August 2014 and was allocated to the Columbus Crew via a weighted lottery. He made his professional debut in a 3–0 victory over the Houston Dynamo on August 23. He was loaned to the Austin Aztex in the United Soccer League, wearing the number 9.[4] Gall was waived by Columbus in February 2016.[5]

On March 31, 2016, Gall joined Nyköpings BIS in the Tier 3 Division 1 Norra in Sweden.[6] After one season in Nyköping, Gall caught the eye of Allsvenskan club GIF Sundsvall, who signed him to a three-year contract.[7] Gall made 24 league appearances in his first season with Sundsvall. After a breakout performance in the spring of 2018, where he scored 7 goals in 13 appearances from a midfield position, Gall secured a move to Allsvenskan powerhouse Malmö FF halfway through the season.[8]

International career

Gall was called up to the USMNT on November 6, 2018 for friendly matches against England and Italy.[9] Gall made his international debut for the USNMT against Italy in a 0–1 loss on November 20, 2018, coming on as a replacement for Christian Pulisic in the 83rd minute.[10]

Personal life

A fan of hip hop and R&B, in his free time Gall enjoys making music on his computer.[11]
